Meatless Mondays Encourage Healthier Eating Habits

A recent poll reveals that participants in the weekly campaign have adopted healthier dietary habits and are more adventurous eaters.

The results of an online survey conducted by FGI Research reveal that participants in the Meatless Monday campaign have adopted healthier eating habits overall as a result of their involvement. The poll asked Meatless Monday participants what effect the campaign was having on their dietary habits, and of the 1,005 respondents, 73 percent revealed they consume more vegetables, 64 percent eat more fruit, 47 percent eat more whole grains, and 42 percent increased their intake of beans. Half of those polled also said they experiment with new plant-based recipes at home, and 42 percent considered themselves more adventurous when ordering vegetarian meals at restaurants. The survey’s results will be shared at the upcoming Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food and Nutrition Conference in Philadelphia, PA.
